Red Chris Mine

The Red Chris mine is located 80 km south of Dease Lake and 18 km southeast of the village of Iskut, British Columbia. The mine operates year round. The current workforce at Red Chris mine is 370 employees. About half the employees are from surrounding northern communities, over 35% are First Nations and 16% are female. We utilize a charter flight service year round to the Dease Lake airport from the South Terminal in Richmond, with marshalling points along the way. A typical route is about 4 hours from Vancouver to Dease Lake, with 2 stops along the way to load/unload passengers. A bus shuttles employees between the Dease Lake airport and the mine site, an approx. 1.5 hour commute. All employees who work at the mine, stay in camp for the duration of their shift. Employees are provided a private room, snacks and three meals daily. The camp has a commissary, recreation facility, games room, fitness room, TV room, areas for socializing, and a room with public phones. Each single room has satellite TV (48 channels) and Wi-Fi availability. The Red Chris camp and mine site maintains and enforces a zero tolerance for alcohol and drugs, and verbal/physical abuse or bullying.

Mount Polley Mine

The Mount Polley mine is located 8 km southwest of Likely and 100 km (by road) northeast of Williams Lake, British Columbia.

The mine operates year round. About 370 employees work at the mine, most living and commuting from the surrounding communities of Likely, Big Lake and Williams Lake. Employees have the option of driving to the mine site, or commuting via the daily scheduled buses for the 1.25 hour commute between Williams Lake and the mine site. Workers shifts will vary depending on their department.

Huckleberry Mine

The Huckleberry mine is located 88 km west-southwest of Houston, British Columbia.

In August 2016 mine operations ceased. The mine is currently on temporary care & maintenance pending a sustained increase in the price of copper.

When in operation, the mine is active year round. The approximately 150 employees live at the site camp during their shift, and work a rotation of 7x7 days or 4x3 days depending on their department. Most employees reside in the communities of Smithers, Houston and Burns Lake. Shuttle buses are provided to transport employees from Houston to the mine site, an approximate two hour commute.

Ruddock Creek Project

Ruddock Creek project is located 80 km east of Clearwater, British Columbia.

Work conducted at the Ruddock Creek project is seasonal due to accessibility during the winter. There are no plans to conduct work in 2017. When the project is active, the camp can accommodate up to 40 workers.
